Buying a fan in the summer is an important and rather troublesome task. However, if you know which criteria you should pay attention to and which models you should stay away from, the choice will not take so long and will be justified. We present a rating of the best fans for the home — floor, table, ceiling-based on the reviews of experts and ordinary customers.
Types of household fans
You can classify this type of climate control equipment in different ways. One thing is for sure: in a global sense, the division into 3 main sections is relevant:
The most popular and widespread type of fans. Most often, these are high-end versions of medium power. But in general, not everything is unambiguous, since there are several design subspecies for the “deck” installation.
Classic axial fans. Exterior: a telescopic rack, a cross-shaped or round base on the bottom, a block with a control panel and a horizontally located electric motor on the top, on the axis of which the impeller is “mounted”. It’s also a propeller or propeller, if you like, like Carlson’s. The blades rotate, moving the air forward and providing coolness to the user. In such models, a mechanism for changing the direction of blowing is traditionally provided.
Axial fans without a rack (with a “low fit”). Usually these are powerful all-metal models with an adjustable tilt, but without a rotary mechanism. An alternative option is plastic versions with a thin body, where a slowly rotating front grille with sloping ribs at the desired angle is used to distribute the air flow in different directions.
Radial fans, also known as column fans. The body shape is narrow and vertical. The impeller is also present, but is made in the form of a drum, the same as, for example, in the internal blocks of split systems. These models are compact, always equipped with a rotation controller, and more often than other versions are supplemented with a remote control. However, they are almost never quiet. It’s not normal to fall asleep with them. But somewhere in the office in a limited space – great.
Everything is much simpler here. Compact axial models of medium or low power on a low stand. They are local fans. The room is not particularly “blown”, but they are good in close proximity, being hoisted on a table or nightstand.
Fans with a fairly large “wingspan”. However, due to the method of placement, they do not take up any extra space in the room, you will not trip over them, you will not drop them (unless, of course, the neighbors from above do not get dirty). Ceiling fans are best suited for a bedroom as an overhead source of coolness, combined with a chandelier. The luminaire block is either immediately included in the kit, or optional retrofitting is supported.
There are also other types of fans. For example, wall-mounted ones. That’s just their very specific method of fastening very few people will be interested in at home. There are desktop “clothespins” powered by USB. This is generally from another “opera” – computer accessories. Finally, there are bladeless models with a turbine. The price tag is sky-high, there are no special advantages, except for the space design. And they are not silent at all.
How to choose a good fan for your home or office?
When choosing a fan, pay attention to the following criteria::
- The performance (power) of the fan should be the main determining factor when choosing it. The larger the area of the room, the higher the power of the device should be, respectively. However, this parameter requires special attention only when buying a floor or wall version, while in a desktop fan, the size of the blades will be more decisive.
- The noise level will affect the comfort of using the device, especially at night. This parameter should not exceed 40 dB. It must be specified in the technical specifications of the fan. And for children’s or sleeping rooms, it is advisable to prefer even 30 dB.
- The fan motor can be based on ball bearings or bushings, the first option is more productive and creates less noise.
- Additional functions of the device, such as illumination, timer, display and even an ionizer, are certainly not so necessary, but they are quite comfortable. Naturally, the price will be much higher.

Our remote control confidently operates within a radius of 2-3 m from the device. It’s a pity that the case rotation can’t be disabled from the remote control
|Midea FS 4051|
In the rating of the best-a model of a 45-watt floor-mounted vane fan. The air flow is “guided” by 3 blades with a total diameter of 40 cm. A remote control is included in the package.

An interesting feature is the “natural wind” mode: the rotation of the blades is periodically turned on/off, and if the rotation of the blade block is activated, the periods are randomly layered on top of each other, forming a truly natural wind blow, a sense of presence on an open veranda. The brand’s home country and country of origin is China, with a one – year warranty.Main advantages:Low-cost fan with three blowing speeds, timer and remote control.Three operating modes: sleep/normal / natural wind.Head rotation (disabled), as well as tilt adjustment.Timer speed and time indication.Telescopic stand, maximum height 1.3 m.Light weight – only 3 kg.Almost silent operation (according to customer reviews).Minuses:Hourly timer setting for 1-7 hours, without the ability to set minutes.Head rotation is not disabled from the remote control.

Best Powerful metal floor fans
|Stadler Form Charly stand New C-060|
A solid and thorough fan, the product of a fruitful collaboration between the Stadler Form team and designer Matti Walker. In the stylish appearance of the device, there is a certain similarity with the outlines of an airplane turbine.

Power consumption varies from 36 to 58 watts depending on the selected mode. The device is made entirely of metal (stainless steel, zinc, aluminum) and has a matte finish.

|Soler & Palau TURBO 355 N|
The 55W floor fan has a premium appearance thanks to its chrome-plated body elements. The design is really floor-standing, since there is no classic telescopic leg here and the blade block (diameter 37 cm) is located at the bottom, near the floor.

The 110 W floor fan effectively drives indoor air up to 30-40 m2. Here everything is quite simple and clear, the main advantage of the fan is metal elements that give strength and reliability of the structure. The diameter of the metal blade assembly is 45 cm. And even if the fan is equipped with a fairly heavy stable base, it still weighs almost 10 kg too much for a portable device. Feature of the model: the location of the speed switch on the back of the blade block. The noise level is about 60 dB.

Large fan, more suitable for large rooms. At home, it looks brutal with high ceilings, works silently, at low speed, as it were, “mixes the air”, you do not allow it to stagnate, evenly distributing the temperature in the room.
Which company’s fans are better?
In the premium segment, the Spanish brand Soler&Palau stands out. Makes really cool fans. And floor, and table, and ceiling. It’s a pity that not everyone can afford the prices for them.
Leading positions in the middle class are confidently held by Chinese manufacturers Midea and Ballu. Their models are not too expensive, they are carefully and soundly made, and they look nice on the outside. In addition, they are characterized by quiet operation, which is especially important for comfortable sleep on hot summer nights.
There is also Electrolux, with which everything is difficult. Externally, the fans of this brand are cute, functional. However, they are often noisy. Yes, and made cheap. Forget about Sweden! Everything is done in Taiwan!” In this case, it is a typical product of mainland China.
The budget segment is mainly filled with products of chameleon brands. Classic OEM from the same Celestial Empire, which is applied to the desired customer logo. If a brand discredits itself, a different name is used. Lottery! In general, it is better to buy a cheap fan in large stores where the exchange of an unsuccessful instance is available. And it is highly advisable to check immediately. Who will like the play of the axle, the creaking, smelly plastic, the constant clicks of the rotary mechanism?
In general, choose what you like best. Stylish, powerful, but expensive-an option if the budget allows. Maybe it’s average in price, practical and convenient-perhaps the best way out for everyone. Sorry about the money? The same position. Only the “cat in a poke” should not be taken.
